Plot

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

After the defeat of their old arch nemesis, The Shredder, the Turtles have grown apart as a family: Leonardo has been traveling the world for the last year, honing his skills. Raphael has been scouring the streets at night as a masked vigilante, the Nightwatcher, taking a page from Casey Jones' book. Michelangelo, in order to bring money in, has taken a job as a masked children's birthday party character(known as "Cowabunga Carl"), and Donatello works as an information technology consultant. [1] Struggling to keep the family together, Splinter then realizes that strange things are starting to happen in New York. Tech-industrialist Max Winters is scheming to amass an army of ancient, evil creatures to help him take over the world by opening a portal during a solar alignment of all nine planets. Furthermore, Winters has enlisted the help of Karai, a minion of the erstwhile Shredder,[2], who is intent on restoring the glory of her late master. Karai has assumed leadership of the fearsome Foot Clan and throughout the majority of the film, she is an elusive, adept ninja and commmander who directs her troops in accordance with Winters' wishes of opening the planetary portal. Shredder (sometimes The Shredder) is a fictional character in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles universe. ... Leonardo (or Leo), a fictional character, is one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT). ... Raphael (or Raph), a fictional character, is one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT). ...

The Foot Clan is a fictional Ninjutsu clan in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles universe, and the turtles main antagonists. ... This article refers to Japanese spies and assassins known as Ninja. For other uses, see Ninja (disambiguation) This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...


As the film progresses, the Turtles reacquaint with one another and enlist the help of their old allies, Casey Jones and April O'Neil, in order to put a stop to Winters' plans and save the world. Leonardo returns to New York City and reassumes the leadership of his brothers, though this creates much contention between Raph and Leo; much of the second half of the film focuses on the discord between the two, ending in a duel between the two that Raph feels will determine the true leader of the Turtles. Though Raphael wins a rooftop battle with his brother, Leonardo is subject to capture by enemies and Raph attempts to track the usurpers, though to no avail. He returns to his deep-sewer home and, much like Leonardo before him, calls upon Master Splinter for leadership advice; Splinter tells him that he is no less or more than his brother and that his aggression is the reason he is not the true leader of the Turtles. The three brothers then set out to save Leonardo and in the process, they collaborate with Jones and O'Neil and take on Winters, the Foot Clan and the Stone Soldiers to rescue Leonardo. April ONeil is a fictional character in the Mirage Studios franchise Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. ...

Though Winters is portrayed as evil throughout the film, he ultimately is redeemed by his good intentions; his motives for opening the portal which was to release an army of ancient warriors onto the world were actually to condemn his fellow immortals, dubbed the "Stone Soldiers", back into perdition. One of the Soldiers realizes Winters' true intentions and begins to rally the others into mutiny, though the Turtles ultimately thwart this attempt, with the help of Jones, O'Neil and Master Splinter, each of whom participate in the penultimate fight scene.

Teaser

The teaser was released in July. It starts out with the camera moving above the buildings on a dark night. When it finally stops moving, the turtles open their eyes and all that can be seen is the whites of their eyes against the dark background. Then, the turtles start maneuvering across the tops of the buildings, finally jumping down and landing in a dark alleyway. As each one lands, they perform kata with their respective weapon. After Leonardo finishes with his kata, Michelangelo can be seen falling into a dumpster. As Donatello opens the dumpster, Michelangelo says "I'm okay." A police siren is heard and then the car pulls up. The officer shines his light down the alley, but the turtles have already disappeared. The camera pans down the alley to show a manhole cover being slid back into place, with the name "TMNT" on it. It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into Trailer (film). ...
